    Again with the clown possum. Are you intentionally trying to drive me away?

  2. Mental Mama says:

    Dude, you are such a fucking perv. Nice! 😀

    What? Oh.

    *puts away cheerleader uniform for another year*

  4. fanrosa says:

    So the chile is assigned to chemicals….ha!

    • Ha…. don’t confuse aisle numbers with department numbers! That already throws all the newbies at work, who they no longer teach the numbering system to. We stock aisles 5 through 12 in grocery each night (split up into 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12), so when one gets assigned to “4 and 13”, they wonder why there’s no candy freight and where in the hell Aisle 13 is since they end at 12! It keeps them out of my hair for a while until they figure it out…

      • fanrosa says:

        Ha! yourself. I assumed you just subbed the aisle number with the department number since our Mecca doesn’t have numbered aisles. At least not visible to the general great unwashed.

        Our SuperMecca is now closing at midnight, what gives? I’m wondering if it’s to avoid bad pr and cop calls when the hoodlums, layabouts and unemployables are up to no good in the parking lot…..

      • It probably has more to do with the Almighty Dollar. That’s 3 or 4 shifts a night they can take off the payroll. The hoodlum theory works as well… my Mecca is in a more crime prone area than the nearest 24 hour store, yet they’re the ones who often have to deal with the criminal action at night. Open stores attract more derelicts than closed stores apparently…

        And the next time I go to that SuperMecca, I’ll have to see if they’re grocery aisles are numbered as well. They actually have their 4 and 13 aisles run along with grocery, so they may be numbered as well!

    I wonder if Butt Nugget Bars are made of real ass?

  6. Ally Bean says:

    I heard that more Halloween candy is sold in the weeks prior to Halloween than the week of Halloween. Don’t know if that’s true, but I believe it. Looking forward to seeing a follow-up of this theme… with chunkier characters… nearer to Halloween. You want to be realistic, don’t you? 😉

    • I would say not true, but it sells very well the entire two months it is out for customer consumption. And I’d say that wasn’t necessarily the case when I started working there 17 years ago… but make no mistake, most Halloween candy is bought for eating, not giving away.

      I will make my characters run on treadmills for as long as it takes to shed those Butt Nugget Bar calories. Like Hollywood, I don’t want pudgy, stretch marked critters who are anything but the ideal body type prancing about in my comics. I must continue to pander to that valuable 18-34 demographic for the advertisers that pay for my Retro TV Ad spots… 😉

  7. So what does one get for Trick or Treat these days? No one comes to our house because we live in the middle of nowhere and are completely out of touch with kids. If you don’t get candy, what do they give out? Flashlights? iPhones? SDcards? Just wondering …

    I need some candy corn. Mmm.

    • Trick or treating has dwindled down to a trickle. Too many unfun adults either going out or hiding with the lights turned off (I was one of those unfun adults last year since it was my bowling night), plus too many helicopter parents don’t want their kids taking candy from strangers after dark. I predict within 20 years, trick or treating as everyone over the age of 30 knew it will be pretty much dead.

      Mecca will still sell a shitload of candy in September and October, though…

      • That really IS too bad. Halloween was the only “kid” holiday where you didn’t have parents watching your every move.

      • A conversation I had at work last night made me realize another reason there are so few trick or treaters anymore. So many of the kids get hauled around by their parents to all of the ritzier subdivisions that have popped up around town… which apparently give out a lot more candy than us plain old poor folks. So much for the days of prowling your own neighborhood on Halloween…

  8. Trisha says:

    Uh oh, I bet things got ugly after that. Odyssey broke the girl code: never comment on another skunkbitch’s eating habits and NEVER comment on her fat ass!

    I wish I had a giant inflatable clown possum to put on my lawn for Halloween. It would probably greatly reduce the number of trick-or-treaters coming to my door and I would gladly pay 99 acorns for that!

    • Odyssey has all the tact of….. well, me. I’m pretty sure Hooly will file it away and get her revenge in their next comic appearance…

      It would be a lot scarier than some of those laughable inflatables that we sell. It also would’ve made Ghostbusters all the more awesome to have a giant clown possum stomping through the streets of NYC in the final scene!

      • Trisha says:

        Yes, it would have! I think they need to make a new Ghostbusters featuring giant clown possum. Or, do a remake of It with giant clown possum. That would be absurdly terrifying!

  9. draliman says:

    I thought possums were bad enough, but possum clowns? 😦 And what the hell is that on his head?!

  10. reocochran says:

    What a mental picture of (hairy) behinds gotten plumper with candy bars, in bikini bottoms… smiles!!!

  11. My group of children are VERY hard to scare! Well australian to start with, by the time they are 5 they have witnessed many unsettling wildlife attacks and by 10 are pretty desensitised and have a survival plan in place for most things. I would really enjoy the look on their faces if I had a possum clown in my front yard! much scarier than the zombie bunny brothers. 😀 Bwa ha ha!

    • The Zombie Bunny Brothers have cuteness on their side… though that’s quite effective in bringing them plenty of people with tasty brains! A clown possum might very well spook a bushman in the outback…. at least for a few seconds! 😉

  12. Possum clown is NASTY!! Although possibly not quite as scary as the bodily fluid clean up request…
